Sofasonic 2020



In place of their debut performance at this year’s cancelled Supersonic Festival, we’re very excited to present  ‘Faca De Fogo’, a brand-new collision-course between Pysch-noise collective Gnod and drummer/percussionist/cymbal-maker João Pais Filipe, with special visuals by IMPATV.


Expect a rhythmically driven journey into a mystical trance…


Forged in the spirit of spontaneity and intuition, ‘Faca De Fogo’ is a soundworld without barriers. Visual duo, IMPATV, together with Chris Haslam (GNOD) have created a full visual journey especially for this Sofasonic set. Combining the polyrhythms of the percussionist and gong maker with the mantras of the UK collective, these musicians truly pay attention to blind spots of their sound.



This is set is part of a showcase by Rocket Recordings, who have been releasing uncompromising sounds from some of the great underground bands from Europe and beyond since 1998, shall host a label showcase over the Sofasonic weekend with GNOD & João Pais Filipe “FACĄ DE FOGO”, J.Zunz and Iggor Cavalera (Petbrick).

Rocket have always been a label striving to push music forward and not stand still – a philosophy that is a testament to their 22-year independent existence, and very much shared by Supersonic.

The label were due to host a large Showcase as part of Supersonic 2020, we are very grateful to still be experiencing that, albeit virtually.

“It is an absolute pleasure to part of Supersonic in 2020 – a festival we hold a high regard for, one that has always supported us and believed in our bands. The true independence and passionate spirit of Supersonic is something we wholeheartedly believe in and it is something we strive to always achieve ourselves”
